do you think the scaler in the tivo is that bad that you cant take it?
I'm not going to take 720p, scale it to 1080i, then to 1080p to watch it. That just sucks. 720p already looks a bit soft, I'd lose the smoothness by going p>i>p. That's why I do native, and I let my video scaler handle the conversion directly from 720p to 1080p, or 1080i to 1080p, which IMHO, looks WAY better than 720p, even though ESPN has the best 720p and the best 5.1 channel audio in the business.
